Mother of two, Sacha Hopkins, 47, died on Friday night after falling over a ledge on a camping trip with her family and friends near Hatta.
Sacha, who has been described as an experienced camper, went for a walk and lost her footing in the dark. She fell and was found 30 minutes later when her family came to look for her.
A longtime resident of Dubai, Mrs Hopkins had lived in Jumeirah with her husband Mark and children Alice, 15, and Billy, 12, for eight years. She had been working as a primary schoolteacher at Kings’ Dubai.
The Hopkins family is preparing to return to the UK for the funeral, while a memorial in Dubai is being planned for a later date.
